The GT S is Mercedes-AMG's flagship sports car. It is powered by a 3,982 cc, V8 bi-turbo engine that is mated to a 7-speed, dual clutch automatic transmission. The engine produces 503 BHP and 650 Nm of torque. The company claims that the car can reach 100 kph from a standstill in 3.7 seconds and touch an electronically limited maximum speed of 310 kph.

The GT S rides on 10-spoke, 19 inch alloy wheels and comes with a double wishbone suspension at the front and a multi-link suspension at the rear.

Mercedes-AMG has equipped the GT S with electro-mechanical steering and a rear axle locking differential. Assistance systems such as Collision Prevention Assist Plus, Adaptive Brake, Attention Assist, Parktronic, rear-view camera, Pre-Safe system and the tire pressure monitoring system are provided as a part of standard equipment. Safety features include three-point seat belts with belt tensioners and belt force limiters, front airbags, combined thorax/pelvis side bags, window bags and knee bags, for the driver and front passenger respectively.

The car was at the Mercedes factory since some time. This will be the launch car and the media vehicle. Looks like they have got it registered much before the launch date. This means media reviews will start coming out very soon too.

Autocar India website is up with the review of the 503 bhp monster !!

Mercedes-AMGís second in-house-developed sportscar is here, and in true AMG fashion, itís loud, charismatic and a riot to drive.

the Mercedes-AMG GT S is the full AMG package in its purest distilled form, and then some. Itís got the raw power delivery, itís got the luxury, itís got the slightly frisky rear end and, of course, itís got the incredible V8 soundtrack. But then it also brings a sense of balance, sharpness and mature handling thatís right up there with the best in this class of 500bhp-plus sportscars. And finally, thereís the fact that it is one of the best looking cars money can buy. The few flaws pale in comparison when you look at the bigger picture Ė this is a car that will thrill owners, casual or enthusiast, on various levels. At an expected price of Rs 2.25 crore (ex-showroom), it will go right up against the likes of the Porsche 911 Turbo S and Jaguar F-type R coupť when itís launched later this month. The SLS was a tough act to follow, but the AMG GT S seems to have more than done it.

It would have been an Epic trio if the SLS was the roadster variant.
